NCRI 2019: Artificial intelligence may speed up brain tumor diagnosis, research suggests

Written by Kimberly Ndungu, Future Science Group

Research presented at the 2019 NCRI Cancer Conference (3–5 November 2019, Glasgow, UK) has demonstrated how chemical analysis of blood samples combined with an artificial intelligence program could speed up the diagnosis of brain tumors.  Currently, diagnosing brain tumors is a challenge due to the ambiguous symptoms, such as headaches or memory problems, furthermore, brain scans are the only reliable diagnosis technique available. There is an urgent need to find new ways to efficiently diagnose and treat brain tumors, as the number of related mortalities is increasing. The team of researchers commented on how this new test could improve brain...
